Afrofit™ is proud to introduce Chakacha as one of their load-bearing dances that will be pushed to the forefront. The Chakacha experience has been put together in collaboration, supervision, and guidance of none other than the world renown choreographer/dancer / teacher Brayo Judah (from Kenya). It has always been of the utmost importance that all aspects of information, theory, and practice, be relayed accurately and with integrity to provide everyone with the most authentic experience! Chakacha is a traditional dance from coastal Kenya that uses percussions to challenge the control of waist winding. It is a challenging dance that calls upon a multitude of muscle groups and tests one's balance. The music is enchanting and one will recognize some Arabic influence to it. It is a celebration of contradictions; control vs release of inhibitions, anchored in tradition vs well adapted to the base modern African dancing.
It is not being taught anywhere else in the USA exclusively and in details. This class is not an overview, but is intended to introduce this dance and its benefits as a lifestyle. It is for women only (18 and older). The cycle consists of 8 classes.
Due to the current pandemic, the class is only offered in a private class setting (not more than 2 attendees per booking).
